Get Che to read you the tweets over the phone. Maybe he can do different voices depending on who's tweeting.

No no, Chuck doing voices would be way funnier than getting people to read their own. Maybe Chuck could start doing dramatic readings of threads here too.

(Reminds me of back when a local radio station had a old lady come in and do Dramatic readings of pop songs. Mmmmm Bop was hilarious!)

We could put that podcast on a CASSETTE TAPE and Mike can listen to it. ;)

2012 R-Design S60 and XC60 with tune from Polestar. + 25 HP / + 29 lb-ft. torque is added to the North American S60 and XC60 R-Designs. With the S60 R-Design we bumped the T6 turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six to 325 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. Passion Red exclusive to R-Design. Unique sport seats, embossed leather w/contrast stitch, sport steering wheel, inlays, blue gauges, and more.

Wasn't an exclusive announcement since these details have been available already. Really was just a chance to discuss the press release from April with a product manager.

Some of us beat up on them decrying the lack of a manual transmission.

Mike, step it up. You can do it, we promise to hold your hand and walk you through it. Twitter's fairly simple. Give it a try; ask your nine year old to show you how to use it.

Besides, maybe you can find a way to use it at work. You're sales right? Make an account, add all your customer's twitter accounts (when available) and tweet to them about new product deals, events you'll be available at etc.

      So as I posted last week was looking for a new econ car daily. Was heavily leaning toward an Acura RSX, took a couple for a test drive this weekend. They were OK, but handling and power were not what I would call "exciting" by any means... I found some high mileage ones for under $5K, and low mileage cars for $10K for an '06, all private sales dealers wanted crazy $$ for low mileage cars too. The high mileage cars were usually trashed and for the cost of a newer low mileage RSX, I could step into a '11 c30 R-Design AW55 with 69K miles for just a bit more and it has a warranty. I got a good deal cause it was traded in at a local Honda dealer and had been sitting on the lot for 2 months so they wanted it to move.
      I really wanted to stay in the Volvo game and the c30 made it easier to bet some parts. I wanted the R-Design for the interior and suspension upgrades, better steering, 18" wheels, over the base model. Only thing this didn't have was the climate package (no heated seats!!!) cause it was a Florida car, no BLIS and as I found out driving last night no xenon... But it did have the good audio with NAV. The climate package and BLIS were almost a deal breaker but since it was a good deal I pulled the trigger... And couldn't be happier!

      I have had Facebook and Google+ integration running on here for a while, so I am pretty sure everything is set up and within their TOS. Twitter on the other hand is new, so I would appreciate any help assuring everything is running smoothly. If you make a post that you think would get attention also on FB, twitter, or any of the other social media sites, can you please try the links at the bottom of every post, and report back any issues or feedback you have. Thank you.
